Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, accused on charges of accepting bribes, fraud and breach of trust, is facing a Court hearing against him, for forming a government while facing criminal indictments.It’s something the Israeli legal code does not explicitly prohibit.
The proceedings are being broadcasted live and are held by an exceptionally large panel of 11 justices.
The country was facing a government deadlock as three elections had failed to conclusively decide the country’s leadership. But Netanyahu had recently reached an agreement with his election rival, Benny Gantz, to end the deadlock.
Any decision against Netanyahu might lead the Nation into political chaos.
The justices are expected to reach a decision this week.
